Tokyo Ramen will specialise in Tsukemen (pronounced skeh-men & translates to “dipping ramen”) comprising of their house noodles, a variety of delicious toppings and a thick, rich soup made with a 10-hour chicken broth.

The eatery intends on exploring and serving many other styles of Japan’s most popular noodle dish as seasonal specials and promises the best Japanese fried chicken in the city.

Owners Stephanie & Danny have spent a large portion of the past three years in Tokyo and look to combine their many years of hospitality experience and passion for all things Japan to bring something unique to Manchester in the form of a 20-cover, Ramen house.

Danny says, “Whilst we appreciate what the other noodle joints provide in Manchester, we aim to create a Ramen house like the many you’d find tucked down the side streets of Tokyo. Those places are extremely intimate and often serve the best Ramen. We are going for quality over quantity and feel lucky that we’ll be able to provide it in such a prime location.”

The site will feature an open kitchen from which the small but perfectly formed menu will be created for its guests. A selection of beers and soft drinks will also be available.
